My sister Helena is here visiting again, and guess where she quickly landed....on the floor with the fabric!

Within a few days of her arrival, we were out shopping and one of the pieces we found was an exquisite child's top.  We couldn't bear to cut it up and after some discussion decided that it would make a lovely cushion to go with other beaded cushions on my couch.

Here it is with the shoulder straps turned under, laying on dark brown fabric.    Anyway, from this idea, my sister made the easy move to arranging fancy cushion fronts from my large selection of beautifully beaded, sequinned, embellished stash.  Click on the pictures for close ups.

Hot Pink, the first one completed 
All the pinks

Gorgeous green
A very beautiful brown and beige

Stunning orange


These will be going on e-bay next week.

So this is just the start of Helena's fabric explosion.  She's here for three more weeks!
